    Still can't believe James *unt is at number 1. Well, I can believe it but I'm still ashamed. British public, I fear for you. There's some proper shit in there, like how are Avril and Katie Melua so high on the list?! Glad Amy Winehouse is flying the flag for decent music.

    Yeah, Amy Winehouse isn't embarrassing at all...?

    And no Britney? I thought she usually did pretty well on the UK charts.

    Make me your Freshie Idol!

    There's nothing embarrassing about Back to Black. That album is pretty much perfection.

    I think it's funny how it's "...of the Decade," yet there are albums from 1997 and 1998. I would tolerate 1999, even though technically, 2000-2009 is 10 years. lol

    Chalk it up to lessons learned

    Just another memory in the back of my mind
    Lock it up, throw away the key
    Forget the things you promised me
    Just another thing I can't forget
    Just another thing I won't forget

    It's a sad reflection on UK buying habits that so many artists on the list are MOR, one-hit-wonders and has-beens.

    I think the same can be said for American consumers of music as well. I wouldn't say the bulk of our purchases are wasted on one-hit wonders or has-beens, but we're prone to it if the song is catchy enough.
